A big number is a table with one column and one row, displaying a metric value and a metric label. It is never used in isolation and relies on other elements in a view for context.
A big number has a single focus state.
A big number can often require time to load, so include a loading state.
Null (blank) values are most likely an error: something is not working as expected. A big number should display an empty state error when the value is null.
When there is no data available, indicate as such and give direction as to how to make data appear. Do not render an empty view.
There are occasionally errors with fetching data. When this happens, give users a helpful, actionable explanation of what happened and what they can do to fix things. Do not render an empty view.
Big numbers have a focus state, but they do not have a selection state or a hover state. They are not interactive.
Big numbers are usually combined with other visual elements. These can include but are not limited to sparklines, histograms, icons, and deltas. Be careful not to combine too many elements into a single container.
When appropriate, add symbols (e.g., currency, percentages, abbreviations) before or after a metric value. Abbreviate large numbers when precision isn’t necessary.
The size of a big number should be fluid. It changes automatically based on the size of the container.
